Introduction to Leatherworking – NEW!
Explore the history of leatherworking, learn leatherworking techniques and leave with a finished leather belt, wallet and pair of moccasins! We’ll discuss the various types of leather and their uses and cover the basic tools and techniques for leatherworking, which include stamping, hand-sewing and tooling. Learn to create a small belt or cuff and then make your own pattern for a handmade wallet. The final project will be a pair of moccasins, created by you to fit perfectly.
